Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: we all need acceptance...somewhere

I am sorry to hear that it has so affected you. Trust me, everyone of us here has been called names, insulted, informed of unknown aspects of our heritage, including aspects of our mother's marriage status at the time of our birth, and much more...it goes with the territory.

In part, because of the frequency of attacks, or "trolling" as it is sometimes termed (depending on the nature of the interaction, etc), the folks that frequent here that are upstanding, all around nice guys (and a very few gals), have become a bit paranoid. They suspect newcomers with "good reason" if their posts stand out in odd ways, which I am afraid yours do.

Now, it may very well be that you are exactly what you puport to be, and that all appearances of misbehavior are in fact the result of your newness with computers and English (though this seems almost too hard to believe...but okay, I am the most naive of all round here, and always willing, unlike WC Fields, to give more than an even "break"). If this is true, then my advice is to grow a thick skin, or more easily, simply post on the DEAD.

The other problem is that very few of your posts about the DEAD per se. This is a classic sign of "trolling." Review a show, ignore insults and questions; provide feedback on posts about the DEAD. I KNOW that if this was all that you did, after a month or two you'd be "one of the regulars" and then could engage with one and all without fear of attack, except for your opinions (that will always occur, and is as it should be).

So, don't go away mad, just go away for long enough to come up with some simply input/feedback/etc on the DEAD and there won't be any problems at all...

If even you W;T. can't tell the difference between me and a "troll" ,then I rather quit the pushy scene ,as that was not why I wanted /accepted to talk with deadheads , after all these years . What kind of PM are you anyway, to allow such bullying towards me ? No wonders the girls don't want to relate to thi GD forum ! You want all to only talk about this show and that one and totally cop out on all other subjects with other deadheads ? Do clarify your real position if this forum is to jive only about this only and as I had not understood that , well, it was kind of nice to talk a while but the deadheads I 'd prefer are whole human beings capable to relate fine with me . I thought we all were ,sort of , working it out, but ,NO, getting insulted by guys I don't even has never been a reason to like deadheads . You might all be smarter than I about computers but I AM way more knowing on other matters . It seem almost worth the trouble with you all until I realized today ther will ayways be one more bully showing on your forum to insult me ,and that is NOT OK ! Who do you think you are to tell ME I should put up with it !!No deal ,either you restrain bullies from agressing me over and over , or I say adieu Guillaume Tell, Bubblebrew ,Jdingowlin,Jerrod Hunter, Garthus,MR the warworldsmith ,Direwolf ,High Flow Noise Collector,Time Traveller, Tacy Pooh,Guyzilla ,Billidions,Nagdot,DeadheadMonty,Bluedevil, and ouh, la,la, all the others I didn't even had the time to write their names ,etc,etc,etc .

Semi-innocent query - do you usually write things the way you say them? I have a somewhat fetching and sexy Scottish accent - the envy of most of the miscreants around here - but I don't write with one. So why do you feel the need to write like a comic book foreigner at least some of the time? Maybe you do indeed say jglynn in that way in your head, but you can see that it isn't written like that. I'm just curious.

In french language we do write same as we say,in english either the spelling of a written word can be different of the way it is said .Perso I had to learn hearing english with americans to then learn how to recognize also the written words It was not the scholarly stuffy way to learn a new language ,but it worked best ,as I learned in 6 months to understand amaricans and start to construct my speaking I admit that after 6 months I HAD to take about 20 live bilingual lessons for how to build a grammatical phrase Kids would learn foreign languages easiest that way ,maybe ?

Your query got me thinking, Rob, and with your background, curious if you have any insights into what I call the "need for internal prounciation while reading phenomenon"...when reading, I find that an oddly spelled name which I cannot pronounce, greatly impacts my ability to read passages...my mind struggles with it each time, and I feel compelled to "say it" to myself or I cannot move on in the story. I've often thought I will just visually recognize it as a jumble of letters that stands for someone, but fail...I have to be able to "say it" to proceed.

The point I am stumbling over here is whether it is innate to the reading process that we be able to "talk it out" as we go...

Anyway, maybe just me...maybe not clearly articulated either, but there you have it!

Your experience is exactly similar to mine. If I come across a word that I don't recognise, and have no idea how to pronounce, it brings me to a grinding halt while I make up my mind what to do about it and how I'm going to handle it next time I see it. I will even, now and then, act out a gesture described by the author so I'm clear about what a character is doing.

I'm a slow reader anyway as my eye is apt to snag on anything unfamiliar, out of place or maybe misspelled (comes from years of proofreading). The whole notion of what's going on in our brains when we read is a fascinating one. If I type 'cat', for example, you see three familiar letter shapes on your screen, and you know what together they signify. but I'd be very surprised if a picture forms in your head even fleetingly of an actual cat. It's that ability to use signifiers that, I believe, truly places us apart from every other creature on the planet. If there's anything else around with a sophisticated system of symbology I'd love to hear about it.

Though I may currently emit a melange of scents ranging from urethane to body odor, I breathe nasally 93% of the time.

Except of course when my roommate lays a rotten egg of a fart and I have to breathe through my mouth so as not to smell - of course there is always the danger that the gaseous elimination is so foul that you might taste it... I will say no more on this subject...

I wonder who cut the nastiest farts on stage and if that ever influenced the jams in a good or bad way?

Well I don't know much about the weather in Scotland since I've been living in England for a number of years either in or near London.

One of my greatest musical memories is going to see Alain Stivell in Edinburgh. He just kept on playing until the people running the concert hall said 'ok, that's enough' and cut the sound and put the house lights on. So Alain said, 'ok everybody let's go to the streets' - and we all went out to listen to them play acoustic music outside until the cops (les flics) came along to stop the fun. Happy times.

Hi, dilcurrie ! In 1969, the real bummer was that beyond hearing the calling of the Grateful Dead I never imagined they would eventually come to France .This ignorance had a awfull price to pay ...

thank god, varied but never boring are the topics discussed here. I have been a member for a few years, like to look in frequently and post occasionally. I've never felt less than accepted

Right; but, my point about INITIALLY posting about the DEAD, was that it avoids some of the problems you encountered because that is what trolls do...once you have established yourself, as Rob notes, much of what we do here is "non DEAD", but by and large it is between those of us who are now "good friends though we have never met".

Regardless, like so many of us that were irritated early on (I stomped off the forum just like you more than once...you can ask McGlone about my "good bye, you heartless bastards!" posts of some years ago), it seems you have decided to give us all a second chance.

And in spite of Mr Earl's well intentioned advice, I am always willing to extend "hands across the water" when the other party is willing.

Now, what do you think of the Mountains of the Moon-->Dark Star transition of early 69? Pretty amazing, eh?
